Chelsea chief Granovskaia meets with agent of Crystal Palace star Zaha

Chelsea have met with the agents of Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha, it has been revealed.

The Independent says, with an appeal against their transfer ban still ongoing, the recruitment process is already underway because Chelsea's director of football Marina Granovskaia spoke to Federico Pastorello to discuss a move for Zaha.

Zaha, who is under contract until 2023, has regularly been linked with moves away from Crystal Palace in recent years since returning from Manchester United.

The 27-year-old came out and said he wanted to play in the Champions League and decided to ditch his agent Will Salthouse from Unique Sports Management in September after a move failed to materialise.

Chelsea are understood to be long-term admirers of Zaha and know the likes of Willian and Pedro are surely nearing the end of their Stamford Bridge careers.
